Capitals Insider: February 4, 2007 - February 10, 2007

Power Play Changes

After watching his power play unit go 0-4 Thursday against the Kings--and 0-15 the past four games combined--Caps Coach Glen Hanlon promised changes. Well, he's a man of his word. The unit now features an umbrella type scheme with Alexander Semin at the top, Dainius Zubrus and Jamie Heward on...

Semin Speaks

Caps Coach Glen Hanlon told me last week that he suspects Alexander Semin speaks/understands English better than he lets on. If you remember my previous entry on the subject, I confronted Semin after the morning skate in Ottawa but was unable to get him to say anything. Well, now I've...

Armchair GM, Part II

Since we've had so much fun spending Ted Leonsis's money this week, I figured why stop now? Today's question is this: Should the Caps re-sign enforcer Donald Brashear? And if so, for how long and how much? He earns $1 million this season and becomes an unrestricted free agent on...

Update From the 'Plex

Injured defensemen Bryan Muir and John Erskine participated in today's practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, marking their first time on the ice with their teammates since December. Muir has been out with a broken foot; Erskine, he revealed today, has been sidelined with a broken ankle. Although neither lasted the...

Armchair GM

Since we had so much fun with yesterday's Question of the Day, I thought we'd do it again. Today's question is this: What should the Caps do about Dainius Zubrus? Like Richard Zednik, Zubrus is in the final year of his contract ($1.85 million per). And like Zednik, the 28-year-old...

Question of the Day

Should the Caps trade veteran right wing Richard Zednik or keep him? It's a decision the club must make between now and the Feb. 27 trade deadline. And from what I'm told, it's a decision the club is grappling with. Since the 31-year-old returned to the lineup Thursday after missing...
